National Pie Day, our SECOND anniversary + Vogue Pattern GIVEAWAY!


Friends, it gives me great pleasure to announce that today, January 23rd, is National Pie Day -- but that's not all!

Today is also our second anniversary here at MPB.  That's right, folks, on this day just two years ago, Male Pattern Boldness was born.  Today we're walking, talking, and nearly toilet trained!



Just like last year, the cables, cards, and flowers have been arriving nonstop from so many celebrities and friends around the world, including --

Mae West



Miss Barbara Stanwyck



Dr. Lorna Gallo (soon to be seen in the uproarious Noah's Very Unusual Insight)



The surviving cast members of Petticoat Junction



And so many more.

As has become a tradition here at MPB, I have a very special pattern giveaway for you on this very special day.  It's the beautiful Vintage Vogue repro 1948 pattern, V2787, in a (contemporary) size 12-14-16 (34", 36", 38" bust).  The pattern is complete and uncut.

Isn't it dreamy?



Can you name these two lovely bloggettes in their own versions?





MPB readers the world over are eligible for this giveaway, and all you have to do is leave a comment below.  Please share your favorite kind of pie, most inspiring MPB moment of last year, or just let off steam. (If you want to say hi but don't want the pattern, just let me know.)

As always, our staff are here for you, and qualified clinical social workers are standing by.*

You have until Tuesday (tomorrow) midnight EST to enter, and I'll announce the winner on Wednesday.

I wish all of you a very Happy Second Anniversary -- please have a slice of pie on me.

Have a great day, everybody!

  1. Happy Blogiversary Peter! My favourite pie is apple pie - as made by my Grandma :)

    ReplyDelete
  2. ooh my favorite pie is French Silk! Living back in the hills I've had to learn to make it myself or do without. My favorite parts of the blog? hmmm...Cathy's unveilings & how-to where the sewing books are long on words and short on pictures.

    Happy Anniversary!!

  3. I love that pattern! I'm quite partial to Laura's version. And pie, I do love some good tart-sweet apple pie.

  8. Happy Bloggerversary! How did I miss knowing about a National Pie Day??!! I'm off to remedy that; there's many quarts of hand picked Morello and Balaton pie cherries in my freezer, altho' the black raspberries and apples may put up a good counter initiative! 2 pies are better than one!!

    ReplyDelete
  9. Mmmmm piiiiieeeee.....
    Couple faves, French silk and coconut cream top the list.

    ReplyDelete
  10. What a fabulous pattern! Would love to own it :)

    And my favorite pie is a simple home made apple pie. I adore the smell of it while it's still baking. And the simplicity of it's taste is just adorable :)

    ReplyDelete
  11. Happy anniversary! Mmm. Pie. Thanks for all your edutainment and inspiration!

    ReplyDelete
  12. Happy Blogiversary! Favourite Pie? Classic apple for me. Thanks for the giveaway - love the dress.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Pie day? Lets hope that my brothers don't know, or I have to go make a pie and I don't have the time! I think my favorite would have to be raspberry rhubarb pie. Tart and yummy!

    ReplyDelete
  14. Congrats on year 2! Pie is like heaven! Pumpkin, Pecan & Coconut Cream are my favs!

    ReplyDelete
  15. Happy Blogiversary! Favorite pie? That's a tough one, as I like most of them... probably black raspberry or cinnamon pie, something my German grandmother made with leftover pie crust. I've had that pattern on my list for several months; I'd love to have it....

    ReplyDelete
  16. Happy Blogiversity, have to say I'm not a huge fan of sweet pies but love home made steak and ale pie.mmmmmmmmm

    ReplyDelete
  17. Your blogging produces a lot of gems, but this continues to be one of my favorites:
    http://malepatternboldness.blogspot.com/2011/02/shirt-free-friday-parrot-video.html

    It was when I first learned about your talent as a performer! Happy anniversary! (and strawberry rhubarb pie for me, please)

  18. ohhh! On the sweet side: Lemon, strawberry, apple. Savory: chicken pot pie, country ham pie. Congrats on your terrible twos!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  19. You can tell that I'm British because my favourite pie by far and away is steam and kidney pie - lovely! here's to many more years to come on your fab blog!

    1. love the blog--check it daily. Pie favourite is rhubarb and apple-very English -like me.

    2. Wait, do they even HAVE fruit pies in the UK? Or are they called tarts?

      Delete
    3. In the uk, you CAN have fruit tarts, but these generally don't have a pastry top, or if they do it's latticed. We definitely have fruit pies!

      Delete
  20. Just saying hi -- Happy second blogoversary! Personally, I like Key Lime.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Congrats on 2 years! There's been so many good moments in the last year - Cathy's rose dress, your leopard pants, several sew alongs, talk about the intersection of fashion and age, and of course, tangerine tango. ;-)

    No need to enter me in the give away (I fear it would never be sewn in my hands). But my-oh-my doesn't Trina look super vampy in this dress!?!?

    Many happy returns!

    ReplyDelete
  22. ps- I could never decide which pie I like best, but the short list includes pecan, pumpkin and blueberry-peach.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Isn't that the Slapdash Sewist? And of course Laura Mae. I DO love this pattern. It's been on my wish list for a while.

    My favourite pie is vegetable pot pie made with barley and red lentils. I use butter in my pastry instead of shortening or anything, ahem, unsavoury. Don't get me wrong, fruit pies are amazing, but a savoury vegetable pie, in the autumn as I'm bringing everything in from the garden before frost, is sublime.

    Congrats on turning two!

    1. incidentally, I'm making cabbage and potato pie for dinner tonight, but I'm not sure it counts as it doesn't have a crust. Pretty good, though, on a balmy, grey, January day.

    2. Correct! Bonus points for you, Sondra.

    3. Hooray for me for spending too much time on the interwebs!

      Do I get the pattern??

  24. A very happy 2nd anniversary to you Peter. My favourite MPB moment of the year was seeing your Ken doll in tight jeans and a sombrero. My favourite pie has to be steak and kidney...mmmm...pie. x

    ReplyDelete
  25. Congratulations! I must say, the parrot video is one of my faves along with the video of the dogs on the treadmill. And, of course, Cathy.

    My favorite is a delicious, sweet/tart cherry pie!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Happy Birthday! I'm a big savoury pie fan. Pieminister in the UK make some AMAZING pies, but their Heidi Pie is my favourite. Goats cheese, red onion, sweet potato....yum...

  27. Aaah, so now you've bribed me and I have to confess, I've been creeping your blog for 6 months now, like a deranged sewing addict in need of some sewing humour and wit.

    Favorite pie is cherry pie! Ooh so so so yum.

    ReplyDelete
  28. I have a deep relationship with pie as I was engaged to the husbie on March 14th (3.14, the real pie day, math nerds would argue). We then served pie at our wedding instead of a cake and I learned then that my favorite is peach hazelnut pie!

    Happy Blog Birthday :)

    ReplyDelete
  29. I actually have this pattern, so no need to enter me in the contest. Both Trena and Laura May look fantastic in their versions.

    Pie favorite is a toss up between apple and my mom's pecan pie (but only my mom's!)

    Happy Bloggerversery, Peter. I'll have a glass of wine in your honor.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Congrats on your two years!

    My favorite pie is Olallieberry!

    ReplyDelete
  31. no need for the pattern, but had to chime in with a sincere congrats. Know that you bring enjoyment to a lot of people with your blog. First thing I check in the morning.

    Fave pie---Pecan...I AM from Texas after all

    ReplyDelete
  32. Many congratulations on your second year of existence! I trust that you will regale us with stories and sewing savvy for many more.

    And please, make mine tart cherry or lemon meringue.

    ReplyDelete
  33. OMG..I forgot to add bourbon whipped cream on that pecan pie....and My bday is March 14th and I never even thought about it equaling pi until mentioned in your comments. Thanks CandaceClay--as for a fave moment from 2011. Leopard pants!!

    ReplyDelete
  34. Congratulations on your work! This has quickly become one of my favorite blogs. That pattern is fabulous, as is this blood orange tart;http://smittenkitchen.com/wp-comments-post.php (pies give me trouble).

  36. My favorite pie is my Mom's Custard Pie. My favorite MPB moment was your find on the street at Christmas. My personal favorite moment was discovering you in Vogue. You've inspired me to try challenging patterns and buy sewing machines. I had 2 fine machines: a 10-month old Viking and a 5-year old Viking. I have a serger too. But since your article, I've purchased 2 old Singers (a Featherweight and a 15-91) and 3 old toy Singers.

    I would love the pattern!

    ReplyDelete
  37. Happy blog anniversary! I think my favorite pie is shoofly pie. But I love all pie, so you'd see me happy with any slice.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Hello-congratulations on being two. Apple and blackberry pie is my favourite...

    ReplyDelete
  39. Congratulations on two years of a thoroughly enjoyable blog.

    Like my namesake, I do enjoy a good savory pie. I've been known to make a tasty crawfish pie.

    The drawing pattern isn't my size, so if perchance I were to win the drawing, please send it to my Sondra namesake.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Happy blogoversary! I've been meaning to say thank you on behalf of my boyfriend for the boxers sewalong!

    I think I also have to be stereotypically British and admit that my favourite pie is Steak and Kidney (although I'm Northern, so actually, I prefer a steak and kidney pudding - this is NOT a dessert - in the UK it's a pudding when you use suet pastry, whether sweet or savoury).

    I LOVE that pattern - I've been coveting it since I saw the Sew Convert's version here:http://sewconvert.wordpress.com/2012/01/04/the-christmas-new-year-surprise-winner-fabric-shopping-in-hk/

  41. The first bloggette I've been reading for several years! The very own 'NiceGirl' from the 'Slapdash Sewsit' blog ~ I read her reviews first at Pattern Review as NiceGirl. The next bloggette is more recent for me, probably a pick up off your blog, which was a pick up off Ms Debbie Cook ~ she is Laura Mae from Lilacs & Lace! Yeah I am so excited I knew those faces :-D

    Pie - Pie -Me oh my
    Nothing tastes sweet, wet, salty and dry
    all at once o well it's pie
    Apple! Pumpkin! Minced an' wet bottom.
    Come to your place everyday if you've got em'

    (Love that movie ;-) ... my favorite is Lemon Meringue

  42. I would love to have this pattern - and my favorite pie of the moment is custard - but key lime ranks pretty high on the list as well.
    Happy Anniversary!!!!

  44. Happy blogaversary! It seems like so much longer than 2 years.

    I'm not a fan of pie crust so (to my boyfriend's horror) I just eat the stuff out of the middle. I do, however, enjoy turkey pot pie and shepherd's pie.

    ReplyDelete
  45. Love that pattern, and my favs are deep dish dutch apple and pumpkin and pecan and oh heck just pass the pie dish over here.

  46. Happy Anniversary! Your blog makes my day! As a cooking professional with a specialty in dessert, I don't know how the heck I've missed National Pie Day. Thanks for sharing. My favorite is Butterscotch Meringue. As for the pattern, I have it and the dress is on the dress form waiting to be hemmed. I hope mine looks as good as your pix! Happy Day!

    3. The recipe I have is a graham cracker crumb base, melted caramels, bananas and coffee flavored sweetened whipped cream. I get a sugar rush just thinking about it. It almost works for you.

  53. Hey Peter - happy anniversary!!!

    I found your blog last year when I started sewing vintage myself, and reading your blog is so entertaining :) One of my favourites (there have been many) was when you bought a vintage muff and made some comment along the lines of 'want to see my muff' I laughed so loud my fiance wanted to know what was so funny, and then I had to explain the whole thing :)

    My favourite type of pie since I am Australian is a good old fashioned chunky beef pie. But you have to eat it with tomato sauce (ie ketchup) or its just not the same. Some may go a step further and label you 'un-Australian' if you eat your pie without sauce.

    Looking forward to many more blog posts to come :)

  54. Congratulations! I've been loving this blog! It lights up my day!
    I'd love that pattern, it would look so good on me...if I ever made that is.
    My favorite pie is my homemade peach/mango with a touch of banana to sweeten it, in a buttery pastry crust. MMMMMMMMMgood!

    ReplyDelete
  55. Make mine pumpkin, with graham cracker crust! Happy anniversary, and thanks especially for the thoughtful observations on the pains of modern shopping. Cheers me up as a former city dweller... also thanks for the rapturous support of vintage machines. You inspired me to take mine to the mechanic for cleaning etc., and to appreciate its unused potential.

    ReplyDelete
  56. Happy Anniversary Peter!! I read your blog just about every day and always end up laughing out loud at something you write. And I've become obsessed with my disappearing eyebrows since reading your post on eyebrows :) My favorite pie is blueberry, preferably with vanilla ice cream!
    Cheers!

  57. I just love my granny smith apple with a big chunk of melted sharp cheddar cheese on top - and a litttle grand manier in the mix - found your blog in my vogue pattern mag. which I purchase for the first time. I too, am teaching my self to sew. thanks

  58. Happy second anniversary - I'm only at second-month-versary. I do recognise both bloggers and love the dress. Pie ... mmmm ... sweet is lemon meringue and savoury is steak and kidney.

  61. You have my gratitude for all your hard work on our behalf. Thanks to you, I've finally worked up the nerve to try to use my late grandmother's Singer model 27 from 1909. Continued happiness and success to you and yours, Peter.

    ReplyDelete
  62. Congratulations! I love crumbly cinnamon apple pie. Yum!

    ReplyDelete
  63. Happy Anniversary Peter/MPB/Cathy!

    My favourite pie is mince & potato topped pie (Shepherd's) & my favourite tart (what you call pie) is citrus/lime. YUM YUM YUM

    There is much to be thankful for in the world and MPB is one of those things that has been a positive addition to my life. I love waking up 5 mornings a week knowing there will most likely be a blog post to read that will be informative, funny and make me think. Every now and again the laughter is accompanied by snorting liquid from my nose on to my laptop screen - the parrot puppet & song video comes to mind here LMAO

    Your blog inspired me to find out about my mum's Class 15 Japanese Clone sewing machine that she gave me and then go even further and buy other vintage sewing machines.

    Without inspiration from you Peter, I would have never known my favourite sewing machine of all time would end up being a Singer 1948 201 treadle!!

    A special mention must go to, your identical cousin ,Cathy who has inspired me to think about sewing up some of the vintage patterns i have, to wear. I don't kid myself that i will ever look as stunning as she does in her vintage/retro wear but never-the-less one day soon i'll be sporting the vintage/retro look i so enjoy.

    Happy Anniversary! it's been a fun journey so far xx

  64. I love apple crumb pie. You inspired me with your jeans sew along last year. It was a great learning opportunity. Happy second anniversary!

    ReplyDelete
  65. HappyAnniversary! Is that rhubarb? Gotta say my favorite pie ever experienced is very specific--the rich blueberry pie from Wimberley Pie Company in Wimberley, Texas. It makes me drool thinking about it. I can bake but I will never achieve its greatness. (No need to enter me in the giveaway, though!)

  66. That last photo really makes me wish I were there with you, having a glass of wine.

  67. Happy Blogiversary! Love Pecan Pie. Your writing about vintage sewing machines is without a doubt the most inspiring to me as I now own a older but perfect Kenmore model 158 (with 1.2 amp motor) which sews like a dream and runs circles around my 'cost like a mortgage payment Elna'. Thanks for being such a good teacher, and thanks for this opportunity to win!

    ReplyDelete
  68. Happy second Anniversary! My favourite pie is just a simple apple pie.
    Some months ago I found your blog and from the beginning I love it! Mostly I love how things turne out of the view of a man sewer. Sometimes it´s quite different of a woman´s. (I hope you understand what I mean). I have learned a lot from your sewings.
    The giveaway pattern is really dreamy! I wish I will have the luck to win it! Thank you so much for the chance!

  72. Happy 2nd blogiversary!

    Favourite pie? Gotta be ultra-creamy pumpkin (don't hold back on the cream, maple syrup, cinnamon and allspice).

    Most inspiring MPB moment? Your beady-eyed discovery of that Singer 221 table in the trash and its subsequent revamp. I'm supposed to be dejunking so enjoyed it entirely vicariously. Thank you.

  73. Favorite Pie? Good question. I'm not sure I've met a pie I haven't liked. Among the favorites: Apple, Pumpkin, Chocolate (!) and Blueberry.

  74. Happy Anniversary Peter, 2 years and getting better by the day!

  80. Congratulations, Peter! Wow, 2 years already?? And such a nice way to celebrate! I've been eyeballing that pattern for quite some time, trying to figure out how to draft it :P Alas, my drafting skills are still quite rudimentary...

    My favourite pie is apple crumble, which is more like a pudding-cake, because the graham crust is on top of the filling :P

  81. Looks like Laura Mae from Lilacs and Lace and... is the other the Slapdash Sewist?

    Seems like no-one else has gone for the pork pie yet. Greatest of all the pies.

  85. Peter,

    You've changed the blogosphere just by opening your pie hole.

    2 years later, there are legions of us who can NOT function without MPB; the ireverant topics, giveaways, sewing tips, the comments from others, daily ditchings, and on special occasions photos of your dogs.

    Congratulations on 2 wonderful years, and wishing your MANY more.

    As for pie, can I admit to being a bit of a cad, and enjoying them all?

    ReplyDelete
  86. Congratulations! Is it weird that I don't like the word blogaversary?! And I don't like pies either... (Or maybe we Europeans just aren't able to make a good pie?) I guess now you all think I'm a party pooper, BUT i do like the pattern. In fact I love it!

    ReplyDelete
  87. Happy Anniversary, Peter!!! So much inspiration in so little time!
    Favorite Pie: Apple
    Most inspiring MPB moment of last year: Hard to pin down, as there are so many to choose from. Kathy’s vintage-style rose dress with the crinoline was truly inspired -- and inspiring. The parrot video was wonderfully funny. I had a great time at MPB Day!

    ReplyDelete
  88. Congratulations, Peter. I hope you have had a great two years with the blog. I have really enjoyed it. I love the pattern and pie of all sorts. I guess my favorite would be apple or maybe coconut cream.

  90. Happy Anniversary! I'm a relative newcomer here, but you have definitely inspired me to continue my own "ditching."

    Picking only one favorite pie is like choosing only one inspiring Male Patten Boldness blog. However, nothing says love like a simple grits pie.

    ReplyDelete
  94. Happy anniversary!
    I do like that pattern you are giving away and it's the right size. Double yay!
    Savoury pie has to be my mom's tourtiere. She only makes one batch in December, a pie for Christmas eve and maybe two more for later meals. It's heavenly probably because I get it so rarely.
    Sweet pies though... I'm a sucker for cherry and blueberry. Oh, but I did have a lovely Saskatoon berry pie in Manitoba (http://www.ladyofthelake.ca/) last year. That was a memorable pie.

    ReplyDelete
  95. my favorite pie is lemon meringue. my favorite MPB moment is your creepy giant doll acquisition. and I mean that in the nicest way, she's awesome. Please enter me in your giveaway, I was just considering buying that one despite my "no more spending until you make something" rule.

    ReplyDelete
  96. Happy anniversary! MMM, love that pattern and love pie. I love almost any kind of fruit pie, but key lime is probably my favorite. That, or my grandmother's cheese pie (not to be confused with cheesecake, but similar).

  97. I absolutely love French Canadian tortierre which is a pork pie.

  98. Happy Anniversary! Mac Pie, made my the Mac Pie Company in Hilo, Hawaii, is my FAVE. I may or may not have ordered it before to be delivered to my home. The chocolate chip filling is the best!

    ReplyDelete
  99. Happy anniversary!

    Homemade is the best kind of pie. Preferably with a blind-baked shortcrust base. I like the tart and sweet combination - so one made with proper cooking apples is probably my favourite. Adding rhubarb, or cherries to them, or adding salted caramel sauce is a great way to never tire of the apple filling.

    A pie a day keeps the doctor away?

  100. I'm the token vegan in the group so any vegan pie is AOK with me. But really what I want is that pattern! Fingers crossed.

  101. Happy Anniversary. I love your Novellas best of all...well they are a tie with...love the daily blog...always captivating.

    Fav Pie: Buttermilk Pie...Yum from the Dutch Kitchen. But the recipe is a secret...probably why it is so good.

  102. Happy blog anniversary! So glad that you keep on dispensing regular wit and wisdom and inspiration!

    My favorite pie is either cherry or pecan. If I had to choose...that's a choice I don't want to have to make right now!

    I do love that Vogue pattern, too. Just gorgeous!

    My favorite pie is definitely cherry - and I loved reading about the Daily Ditch earlier this year!

  106. Happy Anniversary Mr. Lappin! This is what happens when I am behind on my blog reading – I miss important announcements. Congrats! And may there be many more blogging years to come for a fabulous, witty, and wonderfully snarky individual. Who knew a toddler could have such an amazing grasp of cultural phenomena and sewing knowledge?!

  108. hmmm pie? not quite, but I had a slice of rather nice "tim tam cheesecake" today while out antique shopping. If you don't know what Tim Tams are, you are REALLY missing out! And if you do, a hearty "Oi! Oi! Oi!" for Australia Day to you and yours!
